Histochemistry and Cytochemistry of Human Skin: XXVI. Alkaline Phosphatase Activity in the Sensory Nerve Endings of the Clitoris

Arch Dermatol. 1965;91(4):377-378. doi:10.1001/archderm.1965.01600100093025

Alkaline phosphatase activity was found in the mucocutaneous sensory end-organs of the human clitoris and appears to be restricted to the non-neural substance surrounding the coiled nerve filaments. The distribution of the alkaline phosphatase in the sensory end-organs corresponds with that of the nonspecific cholinesterase.
